The Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta exhibits hundreds of species and thousands of animals across seven major galleries. The management of the aquarium expects the quality and reliability of the visual presentation to be of the best pedigree. The aquarium needed a solution to extend AV signals over long distances due to the size and design of its system.

National integration firm Pro Sound and Video, headquartered in Miami, was called in for this project under the direction of Ken Bert, Pro Sound’s experienced themed-entertainment specialist. Pro Sound and Video installed PureLink AVoIP products, as they were able to achieve exactly what the aquarium needed and expected.

The AV Challenge

Video and audio sources had to be reliably extended long distances to displays around the aquarium. The solution had to be effective and reliable, making sure that the thousands of visitors every month enjoyed the highest-quality experience.

The PureLink AVoIP Solution

Fair Lawn, N.J.-based PureLink’s PureStream line of extenders were selected for the products’ reliability and quality. PureLink’s VIP-300H-U provided plug-and-play installation, making it easy for Bert and his team to install. Multiple sources were connected to their relative displays across the aquarium’s local network.

The VIP-300H-U with fiber or category cable connectivity was the best fit for the Georgia Aquarium. The VIP-300H-U transmitters were quickly set to separate output stream channels using their front panel interface, and the receivers were set to match their corresponding signal. With very little time invested, the AVoIP extension system came online, and it has been in operation for many months with zero issues.

Since the installation, PureLink has introduced the successor to the VIP-300H-U, the VIP-T300D. It features additional diagnostic capabilities and TAA compliance.
